Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today left it to the historians to judge his legacy, saying he was more concerned about the task at hand.
"I am not bothered about the legacy issue. I have a task to accomplish to the best of my ability. It is for the historians to pronounce judgements (on my legacy)," he said at a press conference in New Delhi to mark one year of UPA-II.
Singh was responding to a question on what accomplishment he would consider as his legacy.
He described the first year UPA-II as one of "reasonable achievement" but said his government could have done more.
"I believe that the record of our first year of UPA-II is a record of reasonable achievement. I am the first person to admit that we could have done more," he said.
